Fox News’ Neil Cavuto wasted no time in fact-checking President Donald Trump’s latest claims about the tariffs his administration has imposed (and has promised to ramp up) on products imported into the U.S. from China.

Trump on Friday told White House reporters that “the tariffs are not being paid for by our people” but “by China” because “of devaluation and because they’re pumping money in.”

“Remember this, our country is taking in billions and billions of dollars from China,” the president added. “We never took in 10 cents from China. And out of that many billions of dollars, we’re taking a part of it and giving it to the farmers because they’ve been targeted by China. The farmers, they come out totally whole.”

“I don’t know where to begin here,” responded Cavuto, who on Wednesday entered into a war of words with Fox Business host Lou Dobbs about the government deficit under Trump.

“But just to be clarifying, China isn’t paying these tariffs. You are. You know, indirectly and sometimes directly,” he explained. “It’s passed along to you through American distributors and their counterparts in the United States that buy this stuff from the Chinese and then have to pay these surcharges. Not the Chinese government or China in particular.”

I know you probably saw the headline and thought “Here goes Gryphen again with a clip of Shep Smith, the only rational host on Fox News, criticizing Donald Trump.”

But no this is Neil Cavuto who tries to be a Trump sycophant but sometimes just can’t swallow the bullshit. 

In fact there a handful of others who have started to push back as well, which has really started to piss Trump off.

As you can glean from his Twitter tirade at the beginning of last month.

If at some point the folks at Fox News decide that they can no longer carry Trump’s water and call themselves a news outlet, he will be well and truly fucked.
